Into The Woods

Yesterday I went to my 2nd art class out in the woods. We discussed our current project, welcomed a newcomer to the class & did some studio work. I got to spend some quality time with paints & pastels.

The project we're working on right now has to do with the concept of
freeing. It has been very enjoyable so far & I can't wait to keep working on my sketchbook before the next class.

Another fabulous thing about this class is that it's a completely baby friendly environment. Next month, as long as my body feels up to it, I'll be attending class with my little one snuggled close in her Cuddlywrap. It's so nice to have such a great group of supportive women to work with this year. Our classes are just once a month, but once the baby is born I'm sure that's all I'll be able to handle.

As per usual, after class comes tea time. My very favourite sort of time.


Our instructor has the most fabulous collection of teacups imaginable. This orange piece is stunning.




Sinfully delicious little squares. Any recipe that combines oatmeal, chocolate & shortbread is a winner in my books.

I'm very excited to see what everyone takes from this class. The other women in the group are so full of talent & I know that there is going to be a lot of incredible things happening.

I hope you're all having a lovely, creative Tuesday evening. Much love & take care.

I love going to art classes for these very reasons! The inspiration that only comes from meeting with artistic souls and hearing their ideas (which mostly have never occured to you). Oh my! Creativity keeps us warm inside! And those little snug baby slings look so cosy! Lucky Fawnbaby!

Absolutely! It's so fabulous to hear what other people have going on in their oh so artistic minds.

And I can't wait to snuggle my little one close in our cuddlywrap! They fit just like a hug.

Scrummy, indeed! Much like those new pieces you made this week. I'm drooling over both ^_^
Have a lovely evening miss!
